17 January, 2019: Hey, that’s not my family! But I can write this post because I too have sampled the magical tomato mashed potato of Rome. Martina has a list of recommendations for what to do in Rome. If you’re lucky, maybe she’ll share it with you. One of the stops is a restaurant called Pecorino. She sent Ayr’s family… Read More

No giant soup popsicles here

8 January, 2019: The other day Fabricio (DTX) told me that over the weekend he popped his head into one of our competitors and watched the staff defrosting a giant frozen popsicle.

Refined beaker sketches

10 October, 2018: Enjoy this time-traveling post, from October 2008, when Ayr was first developing the logo for the “Clover Food Lab.” As you may have noticed, the logo strayed quite far from this original idea, although you might notice the descendants of this logo appearing here and there at Clover.

What does a sweet potato harvest sound like?

27 September, 2018: Jane, Jenny and I went to Next Barn Over last week to watch the sweet potato harvest. It sounds like roots ripping, farmers laughing, boots squishing mud, iPhone cameras snapping. Quiet fields with the occasional pickup truck driving past. Some of the sweet potatoes were so big this year that the farmers were taking the kind of… Read More
